I had to go back a long time but I did some counting and I think I'm okay.

Anecdotal, but my cousin, who had been single for many years and was quite the player, was well over the 21 but still had to have his prostate removed at 60 due to cancer. He did give it his best 'shot' though.  ;D

Yes.
No one likely uses the term 'player' in the gay community, as virtually everyone is promiscuous.

I'm woefully lacking in my prostate health metric.  I presented the study to my wife as scientific evidence I need to increase my number for my own health.  Mental note -- she doesn't seem to enjoy science as much as I do.

lol!

I heard this on the radio, so I don't need to visit the link.
I'm in the same boat as Tyler. Faithful and doomed.

Sex with 21 women lowers risk of prostate cancer.  Simultaneously or consecutively?

I'm a few short but somehow I doubt my wife would approve my taking this particular "healthy choice".  :P

Does anyone besides me have trouble putting a certain experience in their past into the "did" or "didn't" category?

Or does this fall into the category of "over-sharing?" :)

Not particularly over-sharing, but in my case at least I don't have much trouble with categorizing my past experiences.  It has always been pretty clear-cut. ;D

I was kicking this around with a couple of my colleagues at work and we were wondering why it would be that having sex with a certain number of women would have this result.

My best guess was that it was merely a statistical anomaly and the principle that correlation doesn't equal causation probably applies.

But then I couldn't help but think that the god of evolution might be involved. Maybe he/she wants to kill off all the males that don't have at least 20 sex partners in their life to continue the propagation of the species.

After all, even the God of the Bible said "Be fruitful and multiply".

And some of those Biblical Patriarchs were doing pretty good with their multiple wives and concubines as I recall reading in the good book.

Me, too. I made a mental note to follow up on it, but I've been too busy.
